      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

Presidential Election :11/3/2020- Trump the Impeached vs Superplanner Lizzie & some other Dems

I'll vote for him because I am a regular voter and I will never vote for a Republican.  But I'll tell you what will happen if Biden is the nominee--huge swaths of core Democratic constituencies won't show up at all.  It will be the same song and dance as with Hillary and Kerry, and Trump will win again.  He's been completely normalized for the core Republican constituencies, and they will be enough to win him a second term.  Republican candidates have a built in advantage through the electoral college, and the only way Democrats can win the presidency is by motivating high turnout.  Committed, principled partisans, left + right, are probably less than 40% of eligible voters.  The rest swing in and out, and they need a strong hand to lead them to the polls.  Biden is not that kind of leader.  He's an empty suit.

 

This is the other thing. All the attributes people believe Biden have is not founded anywhere. There is no evidence of this.

 

Trump would pummel Biden just in the “he wrote he crime bill while I passed a bill on criminal justice reform.”

 

And you can do much more.

Curiosity. 

 

Seemed a lot of posters here wouldn't like him as the nominee.  I was wondering just how much.

You hate Trump, right?

 

If Bernie or Warren are the nominees, are you voting for them?

You can do that for everyone.  Sanders:  Socialist; Warren:  Pocahontas and looks like Hillary; Mayor Pete:  Gay;  Kamala:  Nasty.  Nobody is perfect and therefore Trump has ammo.  

 

I'm actually curious about your statement that  "All the attributes people believe Biden have is not founded anywhere."  What do you mean by this?

What he's got is brand name recognition.  That's why he's polling so well right now.

For all the “business as usual” folks, I’d like to point out that 2016 was the first time in a long time that the far-left fringe was given a seat at the table...and they peed in the punch bowl.  Still peeing in it, as a matter of fact.

 

And they spray all over everything in 2020 if they are pandered to.

There is no evidence dude cares about working class whites which is what his front runner status is based. No evidence that they would turn out to support him either.  If that were the case, he gets more than .9% in the 2008 Iowa caucus. And the Obama campaign considered dumping Biden for the 2012 presidential election, so I’m not sure how much they really needed him.

The first way was probably more accurate when it comes to this Administration. I don't think anyone should be shielded just so we can "heal." Let justice work as intended. Someone like Manafort who should have been caught sooner would probably still be free if Hilary were President cause of optics. 

 

I think you're mistaken about the motives of people who vote Democratic. No one is voting to personally stick it to the GOP. No one is hoping the Dems take power and hurt the right people. Like we not out here trying to make bakers exclusively bake cakes for gay weddings.

This man is plum insane. That ABC interview floored me.  Our elections are open for business with consent by the sitting President.

I honestly can't say right now.  I want to know more about them, especially Warren.  I haven't looked too close because there is so much time still.  But if I were forced to pick a yes or no option, I'd probably say no.  I'd go 3rd party or write in again.

in a sane world that man would be in a medical facility receiving treatment for his deteriorating brain. But because the GOP, and good part of Murica, gets off on racism and tax cuts, he's the ****ing president of the united states

 

this **** is over, we ain't coming back from this

Hopefully, the next president and congress will put measures in place to make sure this never happens again. This only proves to me that the Constitution is just a flimsy piece of paper with no teeth.

The Mayor of South Bend Indiana has a better grasp of foreign policy than our two-years-into-his-term POTUS.  

 

(And the Mayor will likely learn more about it, in the next two years.)

Yeah, I've got to admit that a good part of me believes that if we don;t completely exterminate the infection that the GOP machine has become, then we'll just be facing an even more drug-resistant strain in 5-10 years.  That they've literally become a Party of Satanic-level evil, and that a biblical-level retribution is going to have to be used, to teach this lesson.  

 

(As support of this feeling of mine, I will point out that we've now had three iterations of trickle-down economics.  After every one of them, the results have been an explosion of the deficit, and a negative amount of trickle down.  And the GOP reaction to each of these failures has been to retreat a few years, change the packaging they wrap the thing in, and do it again, only more.  Not one of them will even admit that the first three attempts didn;t work.)  

 

Or is you want a more recent example?  The reaction of the GOP, when it's revealed that their candidate was literally endorsed and supported by Russia?  Was to decide that hey, Russia's not so evil after all, they must really be Good Guys.  

 

So, yeah, after, for example, the entire GOP congress unanimously conspiring to cover up Trump's continuing crimes?  A part of me is like:  

 

(NSFW Language)

 

 

But I also have to admit.  I sometimes have feelings along these lines.  (For example, I have often observed that, when I hear that supposedly, units of the Mexican Army have been observed escorting illegals across the US border, that my opinion of the proper US response to this involves an AC-130.)  But I also recognize that I really shouldn't indulge those fantasies.

More about Biden and his views on females expressed on various years campaign trails.  He's seriously out of touch.

 

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/06/joe-biden-iowa-2020-campaign-teenage-girl-fence-warning.html

 

The man is a gaffe machine. That may be underselling it. He's a gaffe supercomputer. People think he's "electable" but there's a reason he's done worse than he was expected to in his two previous runs.

 

He's bene in the race for about a month and he's made all the people mad at him over the Thomas-Hill affair even madder, he's joked multiple times about being accused of sexually harassing women, pulled the campaign's biggest flip-flop, been caught plagiarizing (again(), made himself a joke with the "Republicans really wanted to work with us before Trump" line, and now condescended to an entire gender while sexualizing a 13 year old girl. And that's just off the top of my head. I think there have been more. 

 

That's Uncle Joe.

Let's be honest, the only reason Biden comes off as a remotely viable candidate is due to..............Trump.  If just about anyone besides Trump was in the white house, I don't even think Biden runs in the first place.

Yes and no and maybe. The 12th and 22nd amendment would come into play here. However, the language of the 22nd says elected, so it's conceivable that the legal interpretation would be that Obama could assume Biden's office a*of being POTUS until the end of that term.

He comes off as viable because he was VP. Any VP, save Dan Quayle, becomes an immediate serious contender.
